The Biomedical Engineering program takes an integrated and interdisciplinary approach to advance the knowledge of its graduates toward developing an understanding of fundamental issues at the interface of engineering, biology, and medicine.
Students will learn about the evolutionary process, focusing on how living things function and how several branches of engineering and science are interconnected in these processes. Biomedical Engineering has the potential to improve human health through cross-disciplinary research and application that integrate the engineering sciences with the biomedical sciences and clinical practice.
This program builds knowledge, skills, and critical thinking necessary to further new discoveries in tissue regeneration, biomaterials, biologically inspired materials, tissue engineering, physiological measurements, bioelectronics, biomechanics, bioMEMS, wireless communications in cells, biosensing, biorobotics, biosignaling, ergonomics and associated interfaces.
The department offers the opportunity to acquire dual graduate degrees along with the M.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering. Candidates for these dual Masters Degree programs are typically required to complete a total of 48-52 credit hours to satisfy the requirements of two Masters Degrees. This implies 15-19 credit hours in addition to the 34 hours required for the M.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering.
The Master of Science degree will be awarded only to those students successfully completing the following requirements:
The School of Engineering offers an optional cooperative education program. See the Cooperative Education section of that for further information.
Consistent with the universitys vision, and with the missions of the School of Engineering and the Biomedical Engineering Program, the educational objectives for the Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering program were established as follows:
Students in the Biomedical Engineering graduate program must earn 34 credits. While 28 credits are earned by taking classes, six credits are earned by completing a team-based, publishable graduate-level research project. The core curriculum accounts for 16 credits.
Students will be able to choose from a broad range of concentrations beyond the curriculum.
Biomaterials and Biomechanics
Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering
Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
